Brooklyn Nibbles: Park Slope Seventh Ave. Update
We have a few random notes to convey about food and retail things in Park Slope:
1) The GL reader who sent the first word of the death of the 2nd Street Cafe, sends a photo of a sign noting that Grand Canyon has cut back its hours. He writes: "Grand Canyon, the diner on 7th Avenue opposite PS 321, has cut back its hours. I note it because the 2nd Street Cafe had a similar cut back notice about two weeks before it finally went belly up...I don't know what's happening with Grand Canyon, but in this atmosphere, I assume the cutbacks are not a good sign."
2) We checked out the storefront next to Amin's on Seventh Avenue (between Union and Berkeley), which rumor says will be a frozen yogurt emporium and, above the plywood in front, could see lighting and design that looks very much like it will be something along those lines. We saw something more like Fifth Avenue's Oko than Pinkberry, but who knows.
3) Something is going on in the big space at Seventh Avenue and Sixth Street that used to the be home of D'Agostino's until it closed last year. For rent signs are still in the window, but last week, there was work going on in the basement and a truck in front piled high with bricks that had been removed.
4) Goldy + Mac, a Fifth Avenue Park Slope shop, is now open at 396A Seventh Avenue in the South Slope in a space that had housed Nest. More fashion comes to the South Slope.
